Regulating the breath: Week One

  • Day 1-3: Breath normally and pay attention to your breathing pattern for 5 to 10 minutes daily. You can do more if you are inclined to do so.
  • Day 4-7 : Deep Breathing - Breath through the nose , long, slow, even, quiet breaths. Try to breathe into the diaphragm. Relax the chest. It doesn't rise and fall as much. Breath to a count of four. Do five to ten minutes daily.
  • Supplementary Exercise : The Relaxing Breath - Inhale silently saying "calm." Exhale Silently saying "relaxed." This can also be used to relax a different body part as you breath, any time. It's good for relaxation, stress reduction and when recovering from an illness.

Recognized as one of the finest Yoga retreats in the world, sivanandabahamas is dedicated to promoting the authentic spiritual tradition of Yoga, in an environment normally associated with an exclusive star hotel. We endeavour to embody the spiritual tradition of Athithi devo Bhava (serving the Guest as an embodiment of the Divine) and the staff at sivanandabahamas are trying to practice all facets of Yoga in their daily lives. At sivanandabahamas, you get a unique insight into Yoga, irrespective of whether you are a beginner or have practiced for many years.

sivanandabahamas is situated in bahamas where the emphasis is to live an ashram style life (daily yoga, meditation sessions, chanting classes, organic vegetarian food, no alcohol, community service, farming etc.) in private, serene and "simply" luxurious accommodation and facilities. In a typical Yoga Retreat, guests practice different facets of Yoga - for physical strength, balance and flexibility, for physiological & therapeutic benefits and if they are interested, for pursuing a spiritual path through various types of meditation.

Hindus believe in rebirth, or reincarnation, and in what they call the law of karma. Under this law the conditions of each new lifetime are determined by the actions of the preceding life. To the Hindu, salvation consists of liberating the soul from attachment to worldly desires in order to gain union with Brahman. This is where Meditation comes in, which is important in yoga. Meditation also connotes the word concentration.Ashtana yoga
